    Re: the SuperMoon (Lunar Perigee) this weekend - the Moon will be closer to Earth than it has been in 19 years. Expected to pass as close as 356,577 kms away (that's just over 27,800 kms closer than the ave. of 384,403 kms), the Moon should appear about 15% brighter and slightly bigger than usual. Let's hope for some good views of this Full Moon rising tonight..

    Yea, it looks like the Full Moon technically occurs around 4:40am Sunday 20th March, but as it's not visible from Australian East Coast then the next best time will be as it rises in the East Sunday & Saturday evenings, by the looks.

    There'll be a few fairly high tides the next few evenings as a result of it, but nothing extraordinary. There's guaranteed to be a few more ferals out tho!
